So that’s 40lbs in about 15 weeks?
It should have said, “12” above. But, yeah, around 16 weeks. Funny thing…
I lost a lot of weight on a pseudo version of the V-Diet. That’s funny because I did the diet before even knowing what the V-Diet was. I would eat shakes all day (just Metabolic Drive, no flax) and then eat one dinner. At dinner I would eat something decent - pasta, broccolli, and bison. And I’d zig-zag my calories from 1800 to 2400. Once I found the V-Diet, I took a week off to let my metabolism sort of normalize.
I am worn down from dieting, though. Feel tired and flat. So I’ll enjoy maintanece calories for a while. Even if I gain a couple of pounds back, I won’t trip.
After that, I want to drop another 15 pounds. Likely, I’ll either do an MRP diet or the V-Diet again. [/quote]
Knowing what the V-diet was, I also did a pseudo version, with full blown cheat days once a week and lost about 10lbs with it in 3 weeks. The cravings were bad every single week though and the first week after it I gained almost everything back from eating crappy.
Then I did the actual V-Diet and lost 20-23lbs and don’t get cravings anymore.
I’m sure the weight you gained back won’t be fat as long as you’re not drastically increasing your calories, you’re eating mostly “clean” and still working out.
I know it sounds corny and cliche, but I really have tried and failed many other diets (even from respectable sources) and this one gave me the most dramatic fat-loss while sparing muscle.
